Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1867 (38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1908(23.6%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.1853(5DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1833 (50%fib).

GBP/USD: Sterling slipped on Monday, pulling back from near one-month highs against the dollar and as signs grew that economic gains from post-lockdown reopening were starting to fade.The currency firmed on Friday against the dollar after data showed the United States created far fewer jobs in August than forecast. But subsequent moves have been listless as traders await further cues on the UK economy and the Bank of England’s future policy direction. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3841(Daily high),an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3881 (23.6%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3822(38.2%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 1.3808 (5DMA).

USD/CAD: The Canadian dollar was little changed on Monday against its U.S. counterpart as investors awaited interest rate decision from Bank of Canada. The BoC is due to make an interest rate decision next Wednesday but an update of its economic projections is not expected until October. The Bank of Canada is still on course to raise interest rates to 0.50% towards the end of next year. The Canadian dollar was last trading up 0.01% at 1.2531 to the greenback.

USD/JPY: The dollar strengthened against yen on Monday as greenback clawed back some of the losses sustained after last week’s poor U.S. jobs report, helped by firmer U.S. Treasury yields in a big week for major central banks. The dollar index, which measures the currency against six rivals, edged 0.1% higher to 92.23, after dipping to 91.941 for the first time since Aug. 4 on Friday, when a closely watched U.S. labour report showed the world’s largest economy created the fewest jobs in seven months in August. Strong resistance can be seen at 110.06(38.2%fib), an upside break can trigger rise towards 110.42(23.6%fib).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 109.78(50%fib), a break below could take the pair towards 109.45(61.8%fib).
